Virginia-based, technology company NJVC has launched a new data center strategy to provide a more responsive infrastructure throughout weather and natural disaster events like those recently seen on the East coast. The company-owned and -managed facilities, including an integrated “data center within a data center,” operate within the geographically targeted facilities of NJVC strategic infrastructure suppliers.
As a first step in implementing this strategy, the company announced the availability of the managed services capacity in a hardened, high-performance data center in Richmond, Va.—a 1.3 million square foot data center that comprises one of the largest and most secure facilities on the East Coast. The security standards and practices in a “hardened” environment are much more stringent than in a traditional, “softer” facility. The Virginia data center is designed for the company’s government portfolio.
NJVC operates a specially hardened services stack inside the facility, provisioned to meet demanding security requirements/regulations, including, but not limited to, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA), Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements No. 16, Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standards, Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) High or Moderate, and Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP). Additional data centers mentioned in the launch plan will be established throughout July and the rest of the year across the US.
“The new NJVC data center hosting, data storage and software-as-a service (SaaS) support programs add a new dimension to the company’s data center services’ offerings and its ability to provide enhanced services to customers,” said Jody Tedesco, NJVC president said in a statement.
